I wonder if it's easier or harder to get people to like your stand-up when you're most famous for playing a villain in a wildly successful '80s movie. My first thought was easier because of name recognition and claim-to-fame and all that stuff. But on the other hand, I don't think people ever get over it when you beat up Crispin Glover and try to rape Michael J. Fox's future mother. Tough call. But if you're into ex-bullies making people laugh, then catch Tom Wilson, the guy who played Biff in Back to the Future, doing stand-up at 8 p.m. Friday at Addison Improv, 4980 Beltline Road, with encore performances Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased online at symfonee.com/improv/addison. For more information, call 972-404-8501.
